Seems like a good idea

The 65 percent solution. Make it law that 65% of all educational money be spent directly on classroom instruction- books, teachers, classroom computers and so on. It seems telling that the worst school districts spend the least percentage of their budgets on classroom instruction. Seems like a better plan than doing nothing.

Though I wouldn't mind a portion of that money going toward some real research on educational methods and curriculum- how and what to teach the teachers to make them better teachers. That is sorely lacking, I think.
